Unlike human hair, hairpieces or wigs can’t generate any oils or sebum to protect their strands from damage caused by long exposure to the sun or dust. Then, it goes without saying that hair replacement systems can’t simply grow back as the natural hair will always do to replace all damaged strands.
Okay, take a pause first.
If you are reading this, you probably want to know how you can successfully take care of your hairpieces and wigs at home. And that is a good thing because we’ve got you covered, and as always, your well-being is our number one priority.
Okay, let’s get back to the gist.
You know, storing your hairpieces properly will do you a whole lot of good. This is because it helps prolong the lifespan of your hairpiece and also maintains its natural shine.
Let’s take a look at the six ways you can properly store and preserve your wigs:
1. First things first, you need to groom your hairpiece properly. We recommend cleaning it before you store it and taking the time to detangle it correctly. Proper grooming will do a lot to ensure the hairpiece is stored correctly without risking damage.
2. Find a clean and dry cardboard box and place your hairpiece inside when you’ve finished grooming it. We recommend cardboard as it’s cheap, most households have it, and it does the job just fine. But you could use a box made out of another material.
3.Store each hairpiece in its box. Although it’s tempting to throw all your hairpieces into one box, don’t do this, as it will lead to tangling issues. Trust us.
Keep your hairpiece box in a cool, dry location away from direct sunlight. We’ve already talked about the damage that repeated exposure to sunlight can cause.
5. Make sure the box is air-tight. You don’t want any moisture seeping into your box and accumulating on the strands of your hairpiece.
6. Another wig storage idea is to try using a hairpiece stand. Hairpiece stands take your storage solutions to the next level and are the best way to store your hairpiece. They are made out of soft and light materials like Styrofoam or cloth, and have soft padding. Also known as canvas blockheads, they ensure that your hairpiece retains its style for as long as it is stored when secured in place with a few pins. Just place your hairpiece on the blockhead, secure it to ensure it does not slide off, place the blockhead inside your cardboard box, and you’re good to go!
